DENVER — Nate Kocol, as described by Clear Creek assistant wrestling coach Kyle Gould, is a lot of things. He’s super mature. He’s a role model, especially for the younger kids. He’s a guy that coaches want to be a part of their program. He’s a Clear Creek guy.
The senior was all that and more during the winter sports season not only as a vital member of the boys basketball team, but also as the school’s lone state qualifier at the 3A state wrestling championships Feb. 19-21.
